Your Lake Havasu Vacation Planning Checklist

Vacation planning checklists are becoming more and more popular among travelers who are trying to relax, unwind, and see as many sights as possible while on their trip! Some people love to vacation spontaneously, simply arriving to the destination and seeing where each day takes them. If that sounds stressful to you, you’re worried about missing out on things, or you know that usually leads to overspending, then it makes more sense to create a vacation planning checklist.

Before you take a vacation in Lake Havasu, check out this vacation planning checklist to make sure you’re prepared to make the most of your time in this waterfront vacation destination.

Vacation Planning Checklist #2 Determine the Goal of the Trip

Before you start to plan your itinerary, take some time to decide what type of trip this is going to be. Maybe your goal is to relax, stay active, or make memories. Maybe it’s a mix of a few things.

To get the most out of your trip, it helps to communicate with anyone who will be traveling with you about how you like to vacation. For some people, this means taking a couple days to just enjoy the pool at the vacation rental and relax, and then choose a few activities and restaurants to enjoy. Other people want to make sure to see and do as much as possible in Lake Havasu. Your budget is also an important component that you should clarify both for yourself and anyone traveling with you.

Get the decision making out of the way now so that you won’t spend your vacation trying to decide how you want to spend your time.

Vacation Planning Checklist #3 Make Notes of a Few Restaurants to Try

Treat yourself to delicious dining experiences at Lake Havasu’s restaurants, cafes, and eateries. Sample regional specialties such as Sonoran-style Mexican cuisine, barbecue, and fresh seafood while enjoying waterfront views.

These are some of our favorite Lake Havasu restaurants, worth considering while you’re in town:

  • Shugrue’s Restaurant and Brewery: Located on the waterfront, Shugrue’s offers stunning views of Lake Havasu and a diverse menu featuring steak, seafood, pasta, and innovative American cuisine. The restaurant also has an on-site brewery, crafting a selection of handcrafted beers to complement the menu.

Vacation Planning Checklist #4 Explore the Beauty of Lake Havasu

Of course one of the main attractions of Lake Havasu is the lake itself and all the natural beauty surrounding. Consider how you want to explore the area, with an abundance of outdoor recreation and relaxation options to work for you no matter your ability and preferences.

Consider renting a boat or pontoon to explore Lake Havasu’s vast expanse of water and visit attractions such as Copper Canyon, Steamboat Cove, and Balance Rock. Renting a boat allows you to enjoy fishing, cruising, and sightseeing at your own pace.

An ATV tour is another great way to explore. If you’re an off-road enthusiast, consider bringing or renting off-road vehicles such as ATVs, UTVs, or dirt bikes to explore the rugged terrain surrounding Lake Havasu.

If you enjoy hiking and outdoor exploration, pack hiking gear including sturdy shoes, a daypack, water bottles, snacks, and a map or GPS device. Lake Havasu offers scenic hiking trails such as the Crack in the Mountain Trail and the Sara Park Loop Trail with stunning desert views.
